Former soccer player dies after jumping from a 30 meter cliff

Former Dutch soccer player Mourad Lamrabatte died after attempting a 30-meter dive from a cliff in Mallorca, Spain, where he was on vacation with his family. Lamrabatte was unable to avoid the rocks below him. The dive was filmed by his wife.

In the video we see Lamrabatte throwing himself into the void, then the crash on the rocks, the cries of the woman and his children, who shouted: "Oh my God." The autopsy found that he drowned in a semi-conscious state and not from the impact wounds.

Mourad had just turned 31. Lamrabatte's former Dutch soccer club, SBV Vitesse, expressed his condolences, in a statement: "The Vitesse wishes Mourad's family and friends much strength to cope with their great loss."

The summer of 2016 saw him conclude many signings of his assistants with Manchester United: the free agent Ibrahimović, Henrik Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund and Pogba from Juventus moved to the Red Devils; thanks to this last transfer (at the time the most expensive in the history of football) he secured a commission of 25 million euros.

The summer of 2019 sees him conclude various transactions, the most important of which is the transfer of Dutchman Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax to Juventus for a total of 75 million euros and of Kōstas Manōlas from Rome to Naples for 36 million.
